    One of the local groceries must have made a buying mistake. Steamer clams for .99 a pound. Around portland steamers are either local little necks or imported manilla clams. These were neither but I took a chance and bought 20 pounds. Steamed up 5 clams to try. Delish.

    So I decided 10 lbs for dinner 5 for picking meat for linguini and 5 to smoke. Steamed in seasoned wine picked and into the uds for 2 hours at 180. Then packed in olive oil. They are pretty tasty.

    They look great!

    I do these this way all the time.

    I like to make some for lunch, throw them on the rack in the fire box while a brisket is smoking!

    Smoke ON!

    Have you ever tried laying the clams directly on the grate still in the shell?  I have done it that way and love the flavor, plus you get that clam juice to stay in with the clam.  I make up a sauce of wine, butter, lemon, garlic, and pepper to dip them in or just to soak my toast in as I eat.  Either way YUM!

    Smoke ON!
